This is the second of a two-part Capstone experience that began with BSUS 7401 and focuses on helping an industry client address a sustainable business challenge or innovation opportunity. During this course, students conduct primary research in support of their Capstone project, as well as additional secondary research to validate and extend results . Collected data is managed and interpreted, and a technical analysis is completed drawing on accepted tools and best practices from sustainable business theory and practice. Students develop a communication strategy and communicate results through a final Capstone report, other desired deliverable(s), and a professional presentation at the end of the term.
Students not enrolled in the full-time or part-time Sustainable Business Leadership program require permission to enroll in this course. To enroll, please contact Tessa Jordan, Program Head at email@example.com Combination of in-class and online.
